Happiness is not a choice

Posted on

When you have a mental illness you really can’t just be happy. If I could choose it why wouldn’t I? Now I can choose to make better choices that lead to stability but even that can be tenuous as I never know what might trigger me. I do know I’m very unhappy right now. And I do need to take ownership of the things I can change. I just don’t know where to start is so overwhelming.

    I’m sending you lots of hugs …. I don’t know you, but I wish I could help. There is an old Persian saying, “This too shall pass” and it’s true. I really hope you can get through today ok with the help of some of your favourite things (I like hot chocolate and ginger nuts) and start afresh tomorrow. Thinking of you ❤️

    Start at the beginning. And if you can’t find the beginning, make one. *hugs*
